The Plantation Bulk coffee from Meghalaya is well dried and has a ‘AA’ content of approx.99%. The beans are bold and dense.
The one defect that is discernible, visually and in the cup, is the presence of unripe/green beans, which is present to the extent of approximately 2%. In the cup, the coffee has secured a decent award as it's complexities are greater than it's defects.
Fragrance And Aroma: Positive, with pleasant and sweet nuances of toasted nuts, flash of nougat and touch of milk chocolate,
Flavour: Touch of dark chocolate and herbs, the whisper of orange and orange peel, toasted nuts and caramel.
Aftertaste: There is a slight ring of astringency, overall well developed
Acidity: Fairly well structured
Overall, there is scope for improvement in the quality of this coffee from Meghalaya. It is also interesting to note that there is present a relative purity of the Sln.9 strain in the cup, with an addition of external strains as well.
